Colour Creations Blog Hop Blackberry Bliss Week 5 Art With Heart Team Australia


Hello and welcome

Tonight I'll be sharing with you Week 5 of Colour Creations Blog Hop with the Art With Heart Team in Australia. 

Each week there will be a Colour Creations blog hop showcasing Stampin' Up! Colors with a selection of members from the Art With Heart Team who will be joining in. I'm looking forward to seeing their beautiful projects using the Stampin' Up! Colors. You'll be able to hop around by clicking on the next link at the end of my blog.

The colour for tonight is Blackberry Bliss which is part of the Regals Collection and comes in a number of different mediums such as Ink, Cardstock, DSP etc.... I've used only Blackberry Bliss for my monochromatic handmade card, as Blackberry Bliss is a dark colour I wanted to show the different variation of colour.

For my project I've used a number of different mediums and Stampin' Up! products from the Annual Catalogue. The Blackberry Bliss Striped Ribbon is retiring as of the 30/06/21 but all other products are still available.

I haven't used the flower stamp image from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set in awhile and I always love to colour them in using the Stampin' Blends. I've used light & dark Blackberry Bliss and blend in with the Color Lifter. I've fussy cut the images out.


The background panel is Shimmery White Cardstock with a light wash of Blackberry Bliss Ink using the large flat brush tip Water Painter and once dried I stamped three times using the detailed branch stamp.

Using the large die from the Forever Flourishing Dies in Blackberry Bliss Cardstock and then adding the Blackberry Bliss Striped Ribbon to the panel.

The leaves and sentiment are from the Sentimental Rose Card Kit stamped in Blackberry Bliss Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock. The sentiment is die cut out using the Potted Succulents stitched label  die which fits perfectly and the leaves are fussy cut out.

Blackberry Bliss is a beautiful Stampin' Up! Colour and it's a colour I don't normally use all that often. That's why I love the Art With Heart Team Colour Creations which gets me out of my comfort zone!

  1. What a beautiful card Vicki that shows the gorgeous depth of Blackberry Bliss through washes and Stampin’ Blends. I will miss that ribbon it’s really lovely.

  2. This is a beautifully dramatic colour to make a monochromatic card with, Vicki. Lovely use of all the elements on your card.

  3. Such a great idea Vicki to create a monochromatic card to show all the various tones of this colour - that ribbon is so beautiful and I'm sad too that it will go. Love your colour wash in the background and your colouring of the flower.
